Today I woke up and had a really good breakfast. After that my family and we went to Tiannenmen square. There were soooooooo many people that wanted to take pictures with us. It was like we were famous, which we were for the Chinese. It was soooooooo fun I would love to be famous all over the world. All the Chinese were staring at us and asking to take pictures with us. After all of that funness we went to go see a Kung Fu show. When we walked into the Kung Fu show there was a boy sitting on a chair cross legged hitting a block of wood. This block of wood had a bunch of different carvings on it. It is called a wooden fish and is used by monks when they meditate. Just as we started walking into the gift shop another boy was replacing the boy sitting down. It was a mini Kung Fu toilet brake. We asked if we can take a picture with one and he said yes. Well he nodded. We got in our seats and the show started. The start of the show there was a little boy that was going to learn Kung Fu but to do that he had to leave his mom. The little boy left his mom and was really scared to learn Kung Fu. Knowing that the Kung Fu master told the little boy a story. The whole rest of the show was that story and here it is. There was another little boy that came here to learn how to do Kung Fu. The little boy was also very scared and missed his mom. After 5 years of training the boy became a man and was very good at Kung Fu. He had to take a test before he could become a true Kung Fu master. His first task was to defeat a bunch of different people and he won. His next task was to see if his body is as hard as iron. To see that he laid down on knives, put screws on top off him, then someone laid on him. Then there was a piece of concrete that got smacked with a hammer. He lived. His master was dying and he took his place. The boy in the story turned out to be the master that was telling the boy about his own life. The play was great.
Thank you and please comment.
